Sinning In Your Dreams
That is a good questions, and I have never thought of asking for forgivenss, and yes I have had them kind of dreams, I always rebuke satan out of my dreams, and asked God to fill me with his dreams of love and peaceful things. guess I will start asking for forgivenss if it happens again. mary4964

Sure you should ask for forgiveness. Why not? It couldn't hurt, thats for sure.

If it is in your subconscious it is there. You do not only sin when you do something, you can sin just by thinking. I suggest you pray and ask the Lord Jesus to protect you from any temptation, put on the full armour of God, Psalm 91, plead the blood of Jesus over you and ask the Holy Spirit to tell you where these thoughts are comming from and to take it away if it is sin as you do not want to be tempted.

Yes....I'm not really sure if you really are sinning in your dreams is a real sin...but it could mean possibly you've opened a door to something and you havent confessed that and closed that door, so that could be why...i always ask God to protect my mind while i sleep demons can really try and freak you out while your mind is at work

You are not responsible for your dreams.
When you are asleep your mind and will are suspended, hence it is impossible to "sin in your dreams."
OTOH, dreams might bring up issues you need to pray over and seek counselling for, but this is not the same thing as sinning while you're asleep.

Stacey::It takes 3 things to constitute a Sin 1. Grevious matter
2. Perfect Knowledge
Since you are asleep you are living in your unconscious,state & therefore not in control Therefore you cannot commit a sin.You may commit a sinful actbut being unconscious you are not Responsible & as such no sin.

Steve ... Most dreams relate to some experience you have recently had. if you have read a particularly well written book, where the characters seem real, your sleeping brain will remember it.

, in my dreams, i frequently am talking to people who are characters from a novel i am writing. why is this happening?

, dreams are extremely vague and nothing is as it seems. you can't sin in a dream unless you are consciously aware of what's going on and choose to deliberately sin.

actually allan I have asked God to forgive me in many dreams including night mares but i think it becomes a sin if we dwell on it. Satan can place many suggestions but when we dwell on it or act it out I think it becomes a sin. I could be wrong :-)

Linda ... your suggestion that we ask Jesus to forgive us as soon as we start to sin in our dream is rather nice. But have you ever done this? I think it is not possible. Have yuo ever managed to stop a nightmare?
My answer? I think like f.f. and our dream reflects some conscious thought, so when we wake (if we remember the dream, which mostly we do not) we should ask for forgiveness.

Jesus is Lord of our lives. Our whole lives. He is so omnipotent he is even there with us in our dreams. No control - no way, that's got lie written all over it. The next time you start to sin in a dream, ask for forgiveness and help. You will find that the Lord is readily available there as in your waking time. If Satan is attacking your dreams its probably because he's been unsuccessful getting to you while awake.

Our dreams are sometimes connected with issues we have in our lives, discussions we've had the previous day, things that we are worried about etc. If the sin in the dreams is connected with some reality in your life it might be best to consider that a warning not to go down that road in dealing with the particular issue. Many dreams are just totally unconnected with reality though and are best forgotten.

Like you said we can't control on what we dream about. As long as we don't act upon the sin that was in the dream, I don't see where it is a sin, nor I don't see why you would need to ask for forgiveness.

I find this question fascinating in its scope. And forced to give a recommendation I would say yes, for forgiveness of sinful faults during dreams.
